Nomad. We had grant money. I think the whole shebang came to a few thousand dollars but it had a computer, smart board, DVD player (maybe VHS, too), projector, and cart with power connectors.

We had a couple of large units like you describe and they were made The name escapes me at the moment. Anyway, the problem was wheeling them around and on rough surfaces, slowly, so as to not disturb the delicate workings of the equipment. Be careful about wheels and where you think you will be pushing these. If the cart is simply being moved from one study room to another, on carpet and inside, then it will probably not be a problem. You'll also want all the component "nailed down", so to speak.

Subject: [Videolib] Circulating AV Cart


We are currently looking into creating a circulating AV cart with a laptop, projector, vhs and multi-region dvd player, and speakers for our students.


We are trying to fill a need for small group viewing of video because our regular video viewing room is often booked for other meetings, etc and we have small group study rooms that we were hoping small groups could use.


Does anyone here have experience circulating AV carts and if so, what other equipment would you recommend?


Thanks in advance,

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
